An Aoriculturai. Dibpdt«.— While
tho elerk was making ont the warrants
his Honor and Bijah got into a wrangl
about agriculture, hia Honor claiming
that May was the month in which
plant tapioca, and Bijah declaring that
tapiooa grow on trees, md, therefore,
didn't need any planting.
'Bijah, I'm five years older than you
arc,' said bis Honor, 'and I believe
I've forgotten more farming than you'd
ever know if you'd live to be three
thousand years old.'
'I can't help that,' replied Bijah,
'what I know I know just,as well as
I was as big as a meetin' house You
might puzzle me on law, but when
comes down to farming I won't get be

'Very well,' said his Honor, as he
moved behind the desk ; 'you may want
to borrow another two shillings some
day.'
'And you may want to borrow my
hat to go to another wedding,' was the
reply.
It waa sad to see the two old friends
fall out, and the affair cast a gloom o'er
the spirits of what would otherwise
have been a cheerful crowd .—Detroit

'Perfectly sober, are you ?'
'Just as sober as a preacher.'
She leaned out of the window, peer
ed down into his upturned face, and
then said :
'You'll swear to it?'
'I'll swear to it on a stack of Bibles
ten feet high.'
.'Well, I'll open the door. You Beem

She smiled like a duck in reply to

Faded Hair to its youthful color,

the hair-glands. By its ose, the hair
grows wicker and stronger. In
baldness, it restores the capillary
glands to their normal vigor, and
will create a new growth, except in
extreme old age. It is the most eco-?
